Weekend Efforts

I started a project this weekend that might get me on the TV show hoarders.
OMG. How much paper can one person have?
I am attempting to gather it all into one area. No easy feat let me tell you.
But a great and overdue project when it is just too hot to do anything outside.
My Sunday morning links section is filled with great entries!
